In the last few years November 29th has been a key date with numerous interesting fights falling on this date. Some of those fights have started an era whilst others have just been entertaining.
One of the era defining fights came in 2007 when the great Eagle Den Junlaphan traveled to his native Thailand to defend his WBC Minimumweight title. Unfortunately for Den he was narrowly out pointed by the then undefeated Oleydong Sithsamerchai. For Junlaphan, who was seeking his 5th defense of his second reign, this would be his second loss and the loss that sent him into retirement. For Oleydong this win started his reign that would last until 2011 and included defenses against the likes of Pornsawan Porpramook, Muhammad Rachman and Juan Palacios before eventually losing to the then fast rising Kazuto Ioka.
The following year we unfortunately saw Juanito Rubillar come up short in Mexico as he attempted to dethrone Edgar Sosa in a WBC Light Flyweight title fight. Rubillar was stopped in the 7th round and although he was behind on the cards he had managed to give Sosa some issues before being stopped.
Exactly one year later Japanese fighter Koki Kameda claimed the WBC Flyweight title to become a 2-weight world champion. Kameda out pointed Daisuke Naito and in turn both claimed the world title and avenged Naito's win over younger brother Daiki Kameda, in a bout that was one of the most controversial on recent Japanese history. The fight it's self was an all out war with Koki needing to go through hell in the later stages to win. Unfortunately for Koki his reign was a short lived one and he lost the title soon afterwards to Pongsaklek Wonjongkam.
A little more recently, in 2013, fans were treat to a war in Thailand as Yodmongkol Vor Saenthep managed to stop Koki Eto and claim the WBA interim Flyweight title with a 12th round stoppage. Eto was returning to Thailand after winning the title against Konmpayak Porpramook in a thriller though this time he was unable to repeat the feat and in the end he looked to have been out fought before eventually being stopped.
